5.0 out of 5 stars So many infulences., 25 Feb 2011
This review is from: Yuck (Audio CD)
Ok, I bought this record on the back of some fairly good reviews & had an idea on what to expect. To be honest on first listening I thought too many ideas on one album. It sounded like a mix tape full of obscure american guitar bands that are too cool for their own good. But after repeated listens I now believe it to be a very assured debut which with some minor tweaks could've been a classic. There are some obvious reference points here. Sonic Youth, Teenage fanclub, Wedding Present, Sparklehorse, Lemonheads & I even heard some Buffalo Tom in there! But as I like all those it was good news. The main issue with the record is that it is grounded in records nearly twenty years old & Unless YUCK are aiming for a revival of the slacker years it will be popular with older buyers. Saying that if this turns on a younger group onto the classics of the past this will be a good thing. The record looks forward to greater things regarding future recordings & I for one look forward to that day.
